CorelDraw Graphics Suite X5 offers a high quality design tool for graphics for all user levels. Though Adobe dominates the graphics design industry, for me CorelDRAW has always been the best vector drawing program I have ever used. Suite X5 merges CorelDraw with many extras to provide an extensive set of features. These include the new media browser Corel Connect and image editor photo-Paint.

I have been using this software for almost 5 years since version 3. This review is more about photo and graphics since that is what I use these days. The Photo paint in this software is more like Adobe Photoshop. I do not use much of CorelDraw Vector drawing program. I am not a graphics professional designer, but I do use this software professionally. Most of my projects were designed using this software. Overall, this software is easy to learn and I have used the video tutorials in the Internet to help me through the process.


  • Covers different areas: photo editing and vector drawing
  • It is very easy to learn


  • May be hard for beginners

An Image-Editor that delivers a Remarkable Creative Power and Flexibility

It may be hard to live in the shadow of those big names. Just like CorelDraw Graphics Suite it is always been overshadowed by the programs of Adobe’s much luxurious Creative Suite. However Corel’s flagship suite is continuing to play the game. What I like about CorelDraw is that they remain determined and made an outstanding update. In this version CorelDraw Graphics Suite X5 has included applications for layout, illustration, photo-editing, animation and web graphics that is much better with prior versions.

In addition, I like the few modifications to the drawing tools and adding a few new ones. It also incorporates a new tool that facilitates you to link objects by connecting it with a line. Power TRACE lets you convert bitmaps into vector images with higher precision. Also, the Mesh-Fill tool is more resourceful and there is a new transparency option.

I believe CorelDraw Graphics Suite X5 is one of the most extensive suites of graphics software available. It is also a lot smoother to handle, unlike its competition. For me, this software is always been the first choice since CorelDraw3 because of its versatility and a cheaper price than the other but yet powerful tool.


  • It has much improved features
  • It has a PNG support


  • Some tools might be too frustrating for beginners

A Creative and Easy to Use Graphic Software Suite Today

In my opinion, CorelDraw is one of the most complete graphic software suites on hand today. Despite the inclusion of desktop publishing application that I think, was removed some time ago, it now came with the addition of Corel Photo- Paint, Corel Connect, Bitstream font navigator, and an array of clip-arts.

I do a lot of photo-editing for business purposes and seldom just for enjoyment, and I have been often disappointed on how small functionalities the old Paint Shop tools offered. Upon exploring the features in X5, all I can say is WOW! This suite is an Innovative and slick up to date software package that I would not hesitate to suggest to professionals or even starters.

Overall, CorelDraw Graphics Suite X5 is a fulfilling graphic suite tool. The presentation is amazing, and easy to use and resourceful enough to meet the needs of any graphic artist out there. If you need a good graphic software product, then this program is a good deal to have. It is quite expensive but not as high compared to its competitors.


  • A very satisfying graphic tool
  • Easy to use and versatile


  • The price is quite expensive
